The US table tennis team for the London Olympic Games is composed of three women and one man. What makes this interesting is that all four team members are Chinese American. Their goal is to win at least one medal for the US.
They are Ariel Hsing, 16, Erica Wu, 16, Timothy Wang, 20 and Lily Zhang, 15. Hsing is known as a talented girl, who began to play table tennis before the age of 7, and became an American national champion at 8. At age 10, she was chosen for the national team and she set herself a goal to join the 2012 London Olympic Games at only 12 years old.
Hsing was invited to Warren Buffett's 75th birthday party to play table tennis at the age of 10. The confident girl not only won that game against Buffett and also bet Bill Gates easily.
Hsing will take part in both the single and group competition in London.
